's explanation is logical. you may not agree with it but mr. obama can defend his position. if the u.s.a. is indeed an exceptional nation. and we can save lives without harming our country, we should. strong argument and talking points agrees with it. there is a valid criticism of mr. obama, however, in that he it not lead in this matter. if he feels so strongly about stopping qaddafi from killing people, he could have acted quicker and more decisively. he did not. that doesn't mean it was wrong to seek u.n. approval or world consensus. that is the smart thing to do. mr. obama was not publicly aggressive in doing that he laid back. i want the united states to be seen throughout the world as a noble country. that knows right from wrong. and will protect innocent people if it can. the president seems to want that as well but he is not loud enough about it. the speech tonight was good, but it should have been given earlier and with more passion. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. let's see if fox news chief political analyst brit hume agrees. he joins us from washington.

that president obama is a strong commander. >> according to rasmussen 45% of americans do not believe the u.s.. should get in a conflict for humidity obligations alone. this goes to american exceptionalism. my newspaper column talked about the u.s.a. as a noble nation. for decades we have tried to do the right thing around the world. now we're nearly bankrupt. clearly we request not take wars on like iraq. but an american president should be able to persuade the nation that confronting evil is a worthy endeavor. it's not all about us. if we can save lives without damaging our own country we should do so. but president obama has not been able to make that case. so far his main focus is shifting the humanitarian responsibilities on to other countries. that is okay. we need all the allies we can get but if america is an exceptional countries our leaders have to have that mind set. does president obama? you make the call. that is memo. now for the top story, let's bring in two generals to analyze whether president obama is doing the job as commander in chief. joining us is paul eaton, spent 30 ye
